Apple Fine Print Says ‘Jet Black’ iPhone 7 Will Scratch Up A Real Fkn Treat

The Jet Black colour option for the new iPhone 7 sure has a lot of you frothing, despite the lack of a standard headphone jack.

And fair enough really, it does look sexy as all hell. Even the description from Apple themselves is dripping with SECH (sexy tech). 
“The high-gloss jet black finish was achieved through a new feat of design engineering — a remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodization and polishing. The end result is so purely and continuously black, you can’t tell where the aluminium ends and the glass begins. The dark side, indeed.”


But what you probably missed while you were gushing over this shiny black beauty, was the fine print at the bottom of the Apple site that reads:

“The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process. Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone.”

So basically, if you’re worried about scuffin’ ya phone, you’ll either need to buy a case to protect it or choose a different colour. 
With a surface so shiny, it’ll probably show your grubby fingerprints pretty easily too. Just something to think about before you decide that you just have to have the limited edition colour.
